SmartBike: Function of the charging port

What is the function of the charging port from the SmartBike? Can I use the charging port to charge my smartphone while riding the bike if the lights are turned off?

Thank you for your message and interest in VanMoof!
The SmartBike doe not need charging – there is a ‘hub dynamo’ in the front wheel which harnesses the energy from the bikes motion, stores it, and then uses it to power the display, smartphone connection, and tracking functionalities. The port is used to do a reset, but you can also charge the bike a bit with a charger if you would like. Unfortunately, there is not yet a function that you can charge your phone with your bike.
If you have anymore questions, please let me know!
